Happy Valentine's Day



So what is "Valentine's Day" really all about???


Well . . . Valentine's Day is named after Saint Valentine . . . a Catholic priest who lived in Rome in the 3rd century.


And Saint Valentine began to marry soldiers in "secret" Christian ceremonies . . . which was the beginning of his reputation for believing in the importance of "LOVE"!!


So today's question is this . . . why is "LOVE" so important to ones health???


Well . . . as we know . . . the "gut" is about 80% of the body's "immune system" . . .


And the feeling of "LOVE" . . . can help to nurture and support the "good" bacteria we've been talking about in our gut.


Which in turn , , , fights off "harmful" bacteria that can make us feel sick.


And believe it or not . . . "LOVE" can even "increase" our life expectancy . . .


How you ask???


Well . . . the benefits of being with a "loving" partner can lower the risk of a heart attack . . . developing certain types of cancer . . . and even help to prevent pneumonia.


"LOVE" can reduce "depression" by reducing the feeling of "isolation" in both men and women . . . while "increasing" the sense of belonging and happiness.


And guess what???


That happy, lightness you feel in your "heart" when being in "LOVE" . . . can actually make your blood pressure drop.


And when we "LOVE" deeply . . . there's greater activity and activation in the part of the "brain" that is responsible for the "reward/pleasure" response . . . therefore . . . "less activation in the part of the brain . . . that's associated with "anxiety".


We also get better sleep when in "LOVE" due to less stress in our live . . .


So Happy Valentine's Day to all . . .


And try giving out some "extra" love today.
